I, of course, nominate the 1st and 2nd place winners of my season of the ukulele, being Eugene Ukulele for "Freight Train" and TheSillyDave for "Keep your eyes on the Hands" for best overall performance.

Thank you electrauke!

Unfortunately you can nominate only one for 'Best Overall Performance'. I'm guessing that's going to have to be Eugene Ukulele, but do let me know. You could always put TheSillyDave up for "People's Choice".

Nominations have now officially begun! Any seconders, please PM me (don't post 'seconds' here! :) ).

Nope. You're doing this exactly right. Now all you've got to do is let us have your nominations for 'Funniest Video' and 'People's Choice'.


I, of course, nominate the 1st and 2nd place winners of my season of the ukulele, being Eugene Ukulele for "Freight Train" and TheSillyDave for "Keep your eyes on the Hands" for best overall performance.

Sorry! Are you nominating both for best video? You'll have to decide on one or the other (you could always put the other up for "People's Choice").

:uhoh: I had Pa as writing "My old friend the blues". Thought that was an original for some reason. For Best Original for those weeks I'll go with Berni's Shaft of Sunlight. People's Choice I'll nominate butterflybandito's "It don't mean a thing".

Thank you Janet! It is hard, I agree. There is some great stuff out there. That's why I came up with this rolling nomination thing. I want to give it a chance to be heard again. I'm still hoping for my favourite to be nominated. As organiser, I have to remain impartial :)

I can't deny that so far the call for nominations to EoY Extravaganza II has met with a pretty disappointing response.

So I'm keeping open this set of nominations for another 3 days. You have till 6pm Wednesday GMT to put forward from seasons 53-58 nominations for awards in the video categories.

Nominators, thank you for your contributions; try and see if you can round up some seconders, too.
